Double Dutch


Morning everyone,

Well it looks like my inspiration drought is over as I have finally managed to make a card, thanks to a wonderful sketch over at Double Dutch . They had a fabulous 1st challenge to make a wallet, but that looked too complicated for my old brain lol!!, so I was really pleased to find this amazing sketch for challenge 2.

The DT cards were fabulous and although I normally struggle to put so many pp together I found that this one came together quite easily. I wish I had added a few extra bits.....you know when you do that!....but it was all stuck down before I thought about it doh!!...I am still really pleased with the results though.

Here are the details
  • Image: Sweet and Sassy from Sugar Nellie (she's still one of my favs!)
  • Medium: Promarkers
  • Paper: Mostly K&Co
  • Flowers and brads from stash

Sorry if the photo is a bit pants, but this is my sixth attempt!!!, it's so dark here with the horrible wind and rain.

Also, I've been tagged by Carole and Sandra, so I'll be back when I've thought of some more not so interesting facts to share with you!

It is also the birthday of my lovely friend Hanne - happy birthday sweetie.

Anyway, have a super day, wherever you are, thanks for stopping by, feel free to leave a comment, you know I love it when you do

This is lovely: I never got to do the challenge but it made me laugh that they even gave the sizes of what the paper should be! I think in many ways it made it harder.

Hanne said...
